Fortnite’s first-ever Aqua and Nyhrox Throwback Cup concluded yesterday evening across six of the seven competitive regions.
Epic Games moved the European version of this tournament to next month for COOLER aqua, who is recovering from tendinitis. Unfortunately, the competitive Fortnite fandom has to wait for the reunion between the Fortnite World Cup Champions. NA East, NA West, Oceania, Brazil, Middle East and Asia all were able to complete their respective final rounds.
The tournament itself gave viewers an insight into duos in Chapter 2 - Season 3 from a competitive standpoint. Some notable duos qualified for the Grand Finals. Players had only six games to rack up as many points as possible. Let’s take a look at who came out on top of each region in the Aqua and Nhyrox Throwback Cup.
